Potty-mouth party

AS THE ELECTION season draws to a close, Democrats return to what they do best: cussin’ like crazy.

Verbal diarrhea.

One area in which the divide between goofy socialists and clear-thinking conservatives looms large is language.  Whereas leftists are today’s language police (watch those pronouns!), they do not extend that policing to profanity.

They curse like merchant seaman. Everywhere. There is no social setting in which a well-enunciated motherf**cker seems out of place to them. They are crass people.

I wrote about this during the last presidential election in a post titled What the (bleep)! Movie star Samuel Jackson and comedienne Sarah Silverman released political videos for their man, Weepy Barry, that were nonstop profanities.

Insiders have reported that Hillary Clinton, when off-camera, is also shockingly profane.

You will never see a political ad from Republicans that includes profanity of any sort. We are well-bred people.

(Note: Interestingly, these obscene, ghetto-speak ads from the Democrat Party began with Obama. The old Democrat Party behaved far better.)

Cuba, yet again

WE VISITED Cuba for our 10th anniversary in 2012, and I posted a piece titled Cuba: A Communist Hellhole.

In spite of its being a hellhole for Cubans, you’ll never lack for collectivists outside Cuba who praise the place.

Most have never been there, of course, and those who do visit keep blinders firmly in position.

Recently, I came upon two articles in the PanAm Post written by Scott Beyer who had visited Havana and, like me, had found it sad and deplorable.

You’ll find Beyer’s articles, in sequence, here and here.

Communism is, of course, the final stage of “social democracy” and socialism (à la Bernie Sanders). All are philosophies that pipe-dream of making everybody “equal.”

Equally depressed.

Trump: the reaction

FOR EVERY ACTION, there is a reaction.

Donald Trump is a reaction. Below are a few examples of the actions to which The Donald is the reaction. These examples have been growing for decades. People are fed up.

Normal people, that is.

They are “mad as hell, and they’re not going to take it anymore,” a paraphrase you may recall from the 1976 movie Network.

uturnThe actions began to increase markedly after the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991, which gave America a sigh of relief and the freedom to focus on trivialities and stupidities.

The culture spiraled downward rapidly.

The following list just touches on the absurdities coursing through the veins of America. It is a long list, and you can flesh it out easily. You know you can.

  1. Choose your own gender. Choose your own public restroom.
  2. Black lives matter. Only black lives matter.
  3. Shout down and threaten non-leftist speakers at elite universities.
  4. Everyone who disagrees with you is a racist.
  5. Mohammedan terrorists are our pals.
  6. Israel is bad.
  7. Christians are evil and idiotic.
  8. Open borders.
  9. Sanctuary cities.
  10. Gay marriages.
  11. “White privilege.”
  12. America is a bad nation.
  13. Common Core (i.e. leftist indoctrination).
  14. Ignore the Constitution.
  15. Barack Hussein Obama.
  16. His 2009 Apology Tour.
  17. That Nobel Peace Prize.
  18. “If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor.”
  19. “Workplace violence.”
  20. Women in the Marine Corps infantry.
  21. Policemen are murderers.
  22. Lena Dunham.
  23. Halloween costume enforcement.
  24. Beyoncé half-time shows in black leather.
  25. Eric Holder’s gun-running.
  26. Wearing little sombreros to a party is godawful.

These things and plenty more of their ilk have given rise to The Donald. You have only yourself to blame.

War on Christmas

THIS BEING Christmas Day, it’s appropriate to celebrate the 95% defeat of the secularists’ War on Christmas.

And what better way to do that than to have another guest post by the Fox News celeb Bill O’Reilly?

As people on the left will, almost to a man, deny having any clue what the term Political Correctness means, they also deny any knowledge of the War on Christmas.

Longtime Moon visitor Kim G* says he hasn’t spotted any War on Christmas anywhere, surely not in his social milieu.

He is a Christmas War Denier!

Without further ado, here’s a great take on the very real, but mostly defeated, War on Christmas. Take it away, Bill!

* * * *

bill“Let’s tell a few harrowing stories of past combat, at least the verbal variety. The War on Christmas, widely ridiculed by our cultural elites, was very real and genuinely damaging to many traditional and faithful Americans.

Remember this one? Only a decade ago some major retailers ordered their workers not to say ‘Merry Christmas’ because that might offend customers.

When millions of outraged Americans threatened to take their money elsewhere, ‘Merry Christmas’ was soon back in the retailing lexicon.

How about the skirmish when Rhode Island Governor Lincoln Chafee decided to call his state’s tree a ‘holiday tree?’

Never mind that it was Christmas and the tree was adorned with Christmas lights, the word ‘Christmas’ was put out to pasture in Providence.

Ironically, that city was named to honor ‘God’s merciful Providence.’ Hard to believe Chafee didn’t exactly mesmerize the electorate when he ran for the presidency this year.

There were other disturbing anti-Christmas efforts across America. School boards banned religious music from ‘holiday concerts,’ religious symbols were forbidden from ‘holiday parades,’ and so on.

Some of the anti-Christmas efforts were laughable, but others were downright despicable.

Washington Governor Christine Gregoire, a card-carrying secular-progressive, allowed atheists to put up a sign in the capitol rotunda.

Their lovely message, that religion enslaves people, was just a few feet from a manger scene with the baby Jesus.

Truth is, the Christmas-haters were gaining ground, forcing their Grinch-like attitude on schools and stores and municipalities across America.

Then something happened that might be considered a modern-day Christmas miracle. We fought back!

Fox News, churches, Christians, groups like the Thomas More Society, and sane people of all faiths decided it was time to stop the madness. We identified the most ridiculous examples, we called out the Christmas-haters by name.

And, yes, we won. There was no formal ceremony of surrender, but most of the radical secularists retreated back to their caves and back into the woodwork.

Sure, they occasionally raise their heads and lob a few grenades, kind of like the Japanese soldiers who never gave up the fight on Iwo Jima.

Right now the most militant anti-Christmas organization is the Freedom From Religion Foundation, with headquarters in the uber-left city of Madison, Wisconsin.

That contemptible group recently prevented little schoolchildren in Indiana from staging a Nativity scene.

How proud they must be!

The organization also spends money on banners and billboards that diminish religion as ‘a myth and superstition.’

One suspects the brave folks at the Freedom From Religion Foundation have yet to set up a chapter in Saudi Arabia or Syria. ‘Bravery’ comes cheap where liberty prevails and where a Constitution written by men of faith protects even the stupid.

But aside from those occasional dustups, the War on Christmas has been noticeably absent this year.

Jon Stewart, who mockingly dismissed the war as a figment of Christian imagination, no longer has his Comedy Central megaphone with which to ridicule traditionalists.

But even last year, when Stewart was still at the helm, there were few major battles.

So give yourselves a well-deserved pat on the back for defeating the Grinches, at least for the moment. But don’t get too comfortable because they will almost surely be back.

It’s worth remembering that North and South Korea are technically still at war with one another, 66 years after the shooting began. They co-exist under an armistice signed in 1953.

New ImageSimilarly, the pro-Christmas good guys are now living under a cease-fire of sorts with the secular naysayers.

Enjoy it while you can. In the meantime, we here at The Factor wish all of you a very, very MERRY CHRISTMAS!”
